Susan Harrison to perform at Morenci library 7.16

Written by David Green.

It’s Arty Party time this week when the four regular sessions resume for Stair Public Library’s Summer Reading Program: “Arty Party! Arts and Entertainment.”

Keeping up with what’s going at the library is a little tricky this summer, but today’s agenda is back to the regular format.

Pre-schoolers and kids going into kindergarten attend at 10 a.m. Next fall’s first and second graders meet from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.;  third and fourth graders meet from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. Kids going into fifth and sixth grade (the Wii R.E.A.D session) meet from 3 to 4 p.m.

Next week, entertainment is back on the docket with the musical antics of Susan Harrison’s Palamazoo Puppet and Music Productions at 11 a.m. All groups report at that time.

Harrison is a performance artist and an award winning songwriter from Kalamazoo. She’ll bring her guitar and puppets for a rousing family entertainment show. Everyone, of every age, in the community is invited to attend her performance.

  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
